The Cambodian government has urged Putrajaya to expedite the signing of an anti-human trafficking memorandum of understanding (MoU) to ensure the protection of its citizens in Malaysia especially those working as domestic helpers.
Khmer Times reports that both countries agreed on the MoU in 2012 but it has been on hold since then.
Cambodia’s women’s affairs ministry has cited “political problems” in Malaysia for the delay.
“The MoU is very important for both countries and it will protect Cambodian maids from human and labour trafficking if it is signed,” the ministry was quoted as saying.
